had its own budget problems, and the idea very simply is in addition to the debt of the united states, we have all sorts of day-to-day obligations that the united states incurs to pay the electric bill, to pay federal employees salaries to pay social security benefits. those are not debts to which the debt ceiling applies. and the idea is to recognize if we don't have enough money to pay those day-to-day obligations that the federal government should issue ious to people. it would say we're very sorry, yes, we owe you money, can't pay you now, when we can, we will. and then the fun part of the idea is that instead of the treasury trying to raise money through a back door mechanism like the platinum coin people would take these ious and tell them at a small discount, and that gets cash to most people's hands and at the same time it is less of a constitutional front to the congress. >> jennifer: so the notion would be that the -- so everybody who is a contractor with the government who is owed some money would be given some kind of paper. they could take that paper to the bank, and the

an uncomfortable and awkward position. combat effectiveness is based in large part on unit cohesion. the relationships among members of a unit can be irreparably harmed by forcing them to viteale societal norms. my first response was unit cohesion, used to deny gay and less lesbians the right to serve. >> a lot of the same arguments were used when we were integrates racially. when you're in a vulnerable situation whether that's hygiene or having bullets fly and you're watching your life flash before your eyes, any vulnerable position you're in, it is uncomfortable to have strangers next to you. that's the situation because women are in combat. we cannot accomplish the mission without the women there serving in combat. and because they've been denied the proper duty titles and the training opportunities to train alongside the men they're fighting with, they're relative strangers. the men don't have any idea what their abilities are because we didn't train together. we may have received the same training but in my case being a pilot, i got to train with the men that i served in combat

unit, a charter organization. under this proposed policy change, the charter organizations and sometimes they're churches, civic groups, they're schools. these charter organizations will have the ability to set membership policy. so it seems likely that some charter organizations perhaps the mormon church or the catholic church might continue to prohibit gays and participating but it looks to us that the majority of charter organization civic groups, more mainstream christian nominations will be welcoming gays with open arms because as we've seen at the local level a ban on gay members can be very devastating and you look at all of the reasons there was a change over the last six months, one of the things we were able to do was to amplify the voices of scout leaders using an awesome online tool called change.org to help them gather the million plus signatures you mentioned in the intro and make the bsa national board understand how big of an impact the ban is having at the local level. >> john: you do get a lot of credit for spearheading the effort with the petition. what do yo
